Cinco de Mayo 2013

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

This year we didn't celebrate with full on Mexican food but we did do Chips, salsa, and margaritas to go along with our BBQ!!!

I have been doing homemade chips for a while but have been wanting to make salsa . . .after see this recipe on Six Sisters Stuff for Copy Cat Chili's Salsa on Pinterest I knew that this was going to be my starting point. We are obsessed with chili's salsa and while this recipe isn't exact it is pretty darn close.

Copy Cat Chili's Salsa
28oz can of tomatoes drained
4 whole jalapenos (canned)
1/4 of an onion
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons lime juice

1) Drain the can of tomatoes
2) Cut the tops off of the jalapenos
3) Throw all the ingredients in the blender or food processor and blend

-For the jalapenos make sure that they are the canned version not fresh - you can find them in the Mexican section of the grocery store
-It doesn't matter what form you buy the tomatoes in (whole - diced -etc) just make sure they are plain (no flavoring/ seasoning added) and that you drain the juice
-For homemade chips: Pre heat oven to 350 degrees - Cut corn tortillas into 6 pieces each - place on cooking sheet and spray with cooking spray -sprinkle with salt and any other seasoning you like - place in oven checking every 5 minutes until done

We also made a few drinks to add to the fun
